Music this week

It was a much quieter week’s Music in the absence of our wonderful Year 6 children. During Orchestra, String Orchestra and Wind Orchestra, Mrs Woodhead and Mr Ainsworth were able to spend more time with the younger children to help them with their music. The Orchestra are busy preparing ‘Firebird’ and ‘Hall of the Mountain King’ in time for the Summer Concert, which will be on Tuesday 25 June.

There was no Chamber Choir rehearsal this week but Choir did go ahead. Like the Orchestra, children in the Choir will also sing in the Summer Concert. They worked extremely hard this week to prepare a two-part version of ‘Zadok the Priest’ and will also sing a song by Coldplay and one of the numbers from School of Rock. Quite a contrast to Handel’s Baroque masterpiece! There was good attendance at Singing Club on Monday as the children prepare a selection of folk songs for the Summer Fair and the Sandwich Folk and Ale Festival on Sunday 7th July. This will also involve Year 3 and choir members in Years 4 to 6. The final song will be Skye Boat Song which will involve all children.

There will be lots more Music to come after half term!
